My son has asked me to help find a nice fun hotel for a birthday weekend for him and his girlfriend . I thought Palm Pavilion Inn looked fun and close to many things waht do you think? They are 28 and 30.

It is an older, but nice little hotel. It is on the very northern edge of the 'touristy' area, so it will be a bit of a walk (15 min or so) to the Pier 60 area, which is the hub of activity on the beach. It will be walkable to a couple good restaurants, the Palm Pavilion, Frenchy's Rockaway Grill, which are very casual grill/bar types of places, and some shops, and some other bars. The north part of the beach is a little quieter, and slower-paced than mid beach and South Beach.

I can't help but think at that age especially, they may want to be a little closer to the action of the pier, the park at the foot of the pier, marina, and the 'hub' of action.

If you think they would prefer being in the quieter area, yet still have plenty walkable, than the PP would be good as it is just steps from the beach.

If you think they may want to be closer to the action, check out the Travelodge. It is just across BeachWalk to the beach, under 30 sec walk, and about a 6 or so min walk to Pier 60 and the marina. Frenchy's South Beach Cafe, and Crabby Bill's BeachWalk are next door for great casual meals, drinks, music, etc. Also an easy walk to the action of South Beach, which would be a 25 min or so walk from PP. If they want the hotest beach party spot, check out Shephards Resort on South Beach. Don't need to be a guest there to join the party at their pool,beach, and tiki bars.

Just depends mostly if you think they would prefer the somewhat quieter end, or be right in the heart of it all.

A great visit either way I hope!!!

If they like quiet - the Palm Pavilion is great. They don't allow noisy guests, so the rooms stay nice and quiet. The hotel is older, has very small rooms, and there is no elevator - but they keep it immaculately clean, it is right on the beach, and the price is reasonable. Right across the parking lot is their restaurant and beach bar. The bar has live music many evenings, and the food at the restaurant is good and reasonably priced. At the far end of the parking lot is Frenchy's - another nice beach restaurant and bar. If they aren't in to quiet - then they would be much happier at another hotel.

Jeeez. Sorry ! BTW, Born at Morton Plant in 1962 and have never left!

James, no problem, everyone doesn't see everything the same. That would be boring. I invite you to use your knowledge of the Clearwater area to help the tourists, and anyone else here on TA, seeking advice to help them with their visit.

Thanks everybody for your thoughts. I will ask let my son know all thoughts and he can decide. For myself I think it sounds like a place I would love but I love to walk and ride bikes so woulldn't mind a bit of a walk. I like to stay places that are a bit of a funky feel and like the ideal of live music but I relize some would rather have a new feel . But thanks for the info.

The North Beach area often gets a bum wrap. It is the quietest part of the Clearwater Beach and the reason we fell in love with the area and ultimately purchased property. Not everyone likes the busy Beachwalk area - it can be loud and attracts a different crowd than the North Beach area. North Beach is quiet, has some nice restaurants, and cabanas for rent - and best of all is the Palm Pavilion. The Palm Pavilion is a real gem. It is a lovely little hotel that is kept immaculately clean and is listed as a superior small lodging. It is located directly on the beach, offers free parking, no resort fees, swimming pool, onsite restaurant and bar, and has wonderful staff. I am not connected to the hotel - but stayed there many times when we first started visiting Clearwater Beach years ago. Over the MANY years - it has always stayed immaculately clean and updated. I think it is the best deal on the beach and I would recommend it to anyone on a tight budget or anyone careful with their money. I would rather stay there than many of the hotels recommended frequently on this site. The hotel stays quiet with no loud party guests and is a wonderful place to get a good nights sleep.

The comments on this subject have gotten out of hand - but the Palm Pavilion shouldn't have to suffer as people duke it out. It is businesses like the Palm Pavilion that made Clearwater Bach a wonderful destination.
